Advanced Cutter for Minerals, Rocks and Geological Specimens

GEOCUT consists of a cast aluminium base on which the motor and the working space are provided in the form of two separate housing. A large window of Lexan and a sealed 12V lamp in the cutting chamber allow precise observation of the cutting process at an optimum degree of safety. A large feed table located in the cutter’s generous work area can accommodate a variety of different clamping devices which need to be selected.

The feed table provides a long travel depth making the GEOCUT ideal for cutting long or deep samples in a single pass. X-Y Cross table is available as standard for parallel and serial cutting. Cooling water recirculating system is an optional part of GEOCUT. Cooling is effected by two water jets located on both sides of cutt-off wheel.

GEOCUT cutting machines have the highest safety standards. The interlocking safety device does not allow the motor to be started unless the hood is closed. The hood can not be opened before the cutting motor is stopped. The electronic brake system, which is a standard feature, brings the cutter to a quick full stop in seconds after it has been switched off.

Many petrographic cutting applications require the sectioning of a specimen from an irregular shaped sample. The small size or irregular sample shape can create positioning and clamping difficulties for the operator. To overcome these difficulties, Kemet offers a number of special clamping devices for use with GEOCUT petrographic cutter.
